The U.S. trucking industry is getting creative to meet the needs of a growing economy and a shortage of drivers. As adding more drivers has proven to be challenging, companies are planning (in states where it is legal) to add more trailers to each haul. That along with faster trailer turnover should make it possible for the same number of drivers to move more cargo.
